Krytar, Inc. (Sunnyvale, CA), a specialist in the design and production of ultra-broadband microwave components and test equipment, in August announced the continued expansion of its line of dual-directional couplers with the addition of a new model, offering 30 dB of coupling over the broadband frequency range of 10 to 50 GHz (i.e. the X through Q-Bands), in a single, compact, lightweight package.

Krytar says its new directional coupler, Model 110050030, "is uniquely designed for systems applications where external leveling, precise monitoring, signal mixing or swept transmission and reflection measurements are required."

The company states the new directional coupler "lends itself to wireless designs and many test and measurement applications from X through Q-Band including electronic warfare (EW), commercial wireless, 5G communications, SATCOM, radar, signal monitoring and measurement, antenna beam forming, and EMC testing environments."

For many space-restricted applications, Krytar contends the compact size makes the new directional couplers an ideal fit. A company statement adds:

Krytar’s new directional coupler, Model 110050030, offers superior performance ratings including Nominal Coupling (with respect to output) of 30 dB, ±2.0 dB, and Frequency Sensitivity of ±2.0 dB.

The directional coupler exhibits Insertion Loss (including coupled power) of less than 1.5 dB, Directivity of greater than 10 dB, Maximum VSWR (any port) is 1.9, Input Power Rating is 20 W average and 3 kW peak.

The new directional coupler comes with industry-standard 2.4mm SMA Female Connectors. The compact package measures just 1.12 inches (L) x 0.40 inches (W) x 0.62 inches (H), and weighs only 1.0 ounces.

Operating temperature is -54° to 85° C. The directional coupler can also be manufactured to meet rigid military specifications.

Krytar also offers complete engineering services for custom designs that meet or exceed critical performance and/or packaging specifications. Learn more at
